How to classify yoga teaching study/dream experience

Would the study of or listening to yoga teachings qualify as a type of yoga? Just a thought. Also, I listened to Georg Feuerstein's recordings one night (“The lost teachings of yoga”) and had some unique and vivid dreams. I listened just before bed. Thoughts, comments welcome.

of course.

contemplation is a key aspect of yoga and one of the first ones to put in your yoga practice. WIth contemplation comes understanding, with understanding comes change

It would not be a "type" of yoga as your text states. But I would agree that it, in conjunction with other things can "BE" yoga. All things are yoga (technically) yet what we have to watch out for there is the opposite swing of the pendulum such that we use "all things are yoga" as a cop out or avoidance.

Relative to the dreaming, I think more information is warranted before going further. Obviously late night eating habits tend to stimulate vivid dreaming. I suppose if it were a piercing read, as Georg can be, it could release something in the sub-conscious mind.
